Resource Highlight: MCAA’s Aerial Lift Safety Training Video

February 19, 2021

Each week, MCAA will highlight one or more of the educational resources that are free to MCAA members as a benefit of membership. This week, we focus on MCAA’s Aerial Lift Safety Training Video, an easy way to help meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) A92 aerial lift safety training requirements.

Topics covered include:
• The significance of aerial lift load capacities
• How to properly inspect and function test lifts before use
• What to do when there is a problem with a lift
• The appropriate fall prevention and protection requirements for the two different types of lifts
• Safe operating procedures
